What anti-Semitic incidents have happened in Labour under Corbyn's watch?

Gabbay wrote that he chose to take the step ahead of Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day, which recalls the horrors of antisemitism in Europe and Israel's commitment to combating antisemitism of all forms and in all places.

It is not the first time anti-Semitism accusations have been levelled at Labour.

Israel's opposition Labor party said Tuesday it was suspending relations with British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, accusing him of showing hostility to the Jewish community and allowing anti-Semitic statements and actions from his party officials.

British Labour and Israeli Labor are sister parties and as Gabbay explains in his letter "have a long history of friendship", citing positive past relations with Prime Minister's Harold Wilson, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

There are some areas where the two parties will continue to work together, he added, but "we can not retain relations with you, Leader of Labour Party UK".

Mr Corbyn said he was "determined" that there would be "no racism in any form" within the Labour Party. I have informed all Labour Israel staff, Members of Knesset, and elected leaders of the Labour Party Israel of the suspension of ties with your office. "I am a strong believer that engaging in meaningful dialogue is crucial to finding effective solutions and resolving disputes and I am clear that such a meeting would be just the start of a fruitful ongoing exchange on eradicating antisemitic behaviour and discourse within the Labour party".

Labor leader Avi Gabbay sent a letter to Corbyn informing him of the decision. It's deeply disappointing that the fight against antisemitism within the UK Labour Party has come to this.

The two organizations proposed an agenda that centers on the need for personal leadership from Corbyn to tackle the issue, swift action on outstanding anti-Semitism disciplinary cases, and an educational program for party members. "Clearly this proves that the Jewish Labour Movement's work is more important than ever, and we're not going anywhere".

People in Iran expressed pity and shock that Aghdam would shoot others in a country that allows more social media freedom. The San Bruno Police Department identified Nasim Aghdam , 39, of San Diego as the YouTube campus shooter on April 3.

Mr Corbyn is due to meet the heads of the Jewish Leadership Council and the Board of Deputies, who have both been highly critical of his stance, to discuss their concerns although a date has yet to be set for the talks.

Over the weekend, the Campaign Against Antisemitism held their own rally outside the Labour Party's London HQ.

This week Corbyn slammed Israel's handling of the protests in Gaza on Friday, calling for the United Nations to launch an investigation into the killings of 29 Palestinians as well as reviewing the UK's sale of arms to Israel.
